Our Expertinsight

“Travelling to three large European cities in a few days might seem stressful, but it's not when we organise it all from A to Z. Consider how many things you'll see and how quickly you'll get to know the best of these three incredible cities. For me, it's the best way to travel—full of adventure and discovery. The food, the culture, and the people will be part of this wonderful journey! In London, don’t miss strolling in several neighborhoods; each of them offers something different. In Paris, fashion and gastronomy enthusiasts will undoubtedly be delighted, but don't stick to the touristy places! If you want to eat like the French, there's nothing better than a snack bought in a bakery or dining on the terrace of a “café”. And in Barcelona, La Pedrera, the building conceived by Gaudi, is a must; it's so different from all other architectural designs you have ever seen, and the best part is being able to visit the flats he created!”

When I started to plan a trip for me and my fiancé to Europe, the thought was so daunting, however, Stephen and William at High Point Holidays made the whole experience so easy and stress free!! Stephen worked with me to tailor make the trip to suit me and my fiancé's interests, and we had an absolute blast on all of the tours and events that he planned for us. He made sure we got to see all of the highlights and major attractions in each city and we couldn’t have been more happy with our experience. Stephen and two of his associates at High Point Holidays were also available the entire time I was in Europe to answer any questions and help me with any issues I had. I would definitely recommend High Point Holidays to anyone planning a big trip for the first time as it truly was a great experience.
